We just returned from our vacation in St. Lucia where we stayed at the Fond Deux for 7 nights. The moment we arrived they offered us a cold drink and time to relax after traveling all day. We stayed in the Treehouse cottage, which has a private pool and an outdoor living area. Highly recommend that you look into the upgraded cottages. The privacy and amenities are well worth the price.
Our vacation was all-inclusive so we ate in the restaurant for every meal. The food was outstanding with several choices at each meal- fresh catch of the day, chef specials and great dessert. You will not be disappointed if your plans included traveling the island by day but returning to Fond Deux to eat at night. It was one of the best dining experiences of our life.
We decided to take the free shuttle to Sugar Beach most days, but did end up taking a water taxi to Anse Chastanet one day to experience the black volcanic sand beach. Fond Deux offers several excursions that looked great, but we only went on the sunset cruise. That trip was well worth the price. The only other travel tip is to have the hotel pick you up at the airport. The price is more than reasonable given the proximity of the airport to the plantation.
Finally, I would suggest that you read all reviews and look at photographs. We felt like those gave us a great idea of what to expect from the Fond Deux. Its a rustic, jungle setting on a working plantation- nothing like the sterile resorts you might be used to. We loved every minute of our time at Fond Deux and will recommend it to all our friends and family.
